A Visual Journey Down the Nærøyfjord | Norway

A Visual Journey Down the Nærøyfjord | Norway

The Nærøyfjord, a stunningly narrow fjord that runs from Gundvangen into the larger Søgnefjord, was created 2.5 million years ago as the glaciers that covered it retreated, slowing eroding a deep, steep valley that later filled with sea water.  The Nærøyfjord sets itself apart from other breathtaking fjords with its nearness - in fact, "nær" means near in Norwegian; the narrowness of the fjord means that you can cruise on a ferry down the middle of it and feel quite near to the sky high stone walls on either side of your boat.

To give you an idea of what we're talking about, enjoy our photo journal of the journey from Aurland to Gundvangen.
